About Trinity Community Church 

Trinity is a young, non-denominational church of about 300 people in a fast-growing university town. We exist to practice the way of Jesus together for the renewal of all things. We are part of Harbor Network and consider ourselves gospel centered, community oriented, and Spirit filled. We formally began Sunday gatherings in September 2018 and now meet in a Christian K-12 school (that requires minimal weekly setup). To help our members connect more deeply with God, we have a significant emphasis on worship and prayer. We also have a great children’s ministry and eleven growing community groups that meet throughout the week. 

Our worship style is contemporary with a dual emphasis on expressive praise and deep formation. We want our worship to draw us deeper into God’s presence, expand and lift our view of God, and form a worshipping culture in our community. We enjoy songs by a wide range of artists including Shane & Shane, Maverick City, People & Songs, Bethel, Hillsong, City Alight, Mission House, Elevation, Citizens, Phil Wickham, Waterdeep, Austin Stone, and others. We use a semi-formal liturgical structure to the gatherings as well. Visit to get to know us.
